victims of the bernie madoff ponzi scheme sitting in a bank account. >> thanks for joining us this morning. >> we appreciate it. >> "fox & friends" with elisabeth starts now. >> bye. >>elisabeth: good morning. it is tuesday, september 17. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. we begin with a fox news alert. we're learning about the gunman that killed 12 in washington, d.c. we're live from the scene ahead. >>steve: the president already leading the way, already making this about gun control aga but wait until you hear about the suspect's criminal history that seems to have been swept under the rug. >>brian: new overnight, amazing pictures out of italy. after nearly two years of laying on her side in the ocean, the costa concordia
finally lifted upright. it took me a long time and it hurt a lot, but i did it. my chops are killing me. "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >>steve: it's a good sign she came back for a second day. >>brian: not a surprise. you've got a taste of what it is like. here we are having fun yesterday thinking we're going to close out the show, and then all of a sudden we find out about 8:30 there was a shooter in washington. >>elisabeth: exactly. tragic information that came across. we're going to get right to that fox news alert. we know much more this morning about the former navy reservist who opened fire at the naval yard killing 12 people before taken out by police. fox news confirming aaron alexis had a history of violence including several shooting incidents. >>brian: we've got peter
doocy there live today with the latest. much different scene than the one we left you with yesterday afternoon. >> it is, brian. the first thing i saw when i arrived at the navy yard yesterday when we got out of the car on the street just outside the front gate was a man in full military fatigues with a rifle running toward the scene. that set the stage for what would become a horrific day throughout the morning and the afternoon. we saw authorities trying to save wounded victims with these daring rooftop helicopter rescues. but in the end 12 people could not be saved, and now we know some of their names. 59-year-old michael arnold. 53-year-old silvia frazier. 62-year-old kathy guard. 73-year-old john roger johnson. 50-year-old frank culler. 46-year-old kenneth bernard johnson. 60-year-old vishnu pandit.
we're hearing more this morning about the hell inside building 197 that began as thousands of people were arriving for work yesterday. >> we heard four shots really fast and very rapid. and then i just hid behind a brick wall. i didn't know if they were aiming at anybody or anything. it was just really odd because i thought all the shooting had taken place. just stood there for awhile. then i said i've got to get out of here. >> witnesses say the shooter, 34-year-old former nature reservist aaron alexis, was aiming at helpless workers on the first floor from a perch a few stories higher and authorities say he did gain entry to the navy yard with a valid pass he had from his job as an hourly subcontractor, and his security clearance for that job was reportedly approved just this summer.
back to you in new york. >>steve: thank you very much. >>elisabeth: certainly this topic has already taken a turn again making this about gun control. >>steve: look at the cover of the "new york daily news" today. same gun, different slay. it shows this ar-15. they found it with this guy, but they don't know whether or not he brought it in. they do at this point believe he went in with a shotgun, but then it sounds like he shot a security guy and then took his handgun. and there is a possibility that the ar-15 was actually from somebody in -- >>brian: still a lot of questions. number one, how do you get through there? here you need secure i.d. seems like he had it. is there a metal detector there? doesn't seem to have been the case. once he did get in, that is the story. you were talking about elisabeth, is this about gun control or about a guy that has a history of
drinking a lot, playing video games a lot of or a few shooting incidents. it didn't take long for jesse jackson to right aren't we all to blame for monday's shooting? senator dianne feinstein renewing her call for new gun control. when will enough be enough? congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume thoughtful debate. >>elisabeth: what happens in a situation as tragic as this is we start to spread blame where it possibly doesn't belong. i think we know where the blame truly belongs and that would be in alex' hands. what about the security? there was a navy commander asked about a level of security that was there. someone said is this safe? he was asked by a reporter is the navy yard safe and he replied, quote, not today. >>steve: he had a government access card. the way i understand it is
he could actually bypass the security line. go right in from the garage straight into the building. but the question is, how did this guy get a government contractor access card? there he is right there. he was discharged from the navy reserve for a pattern of misconduct and given a general discharge as well which generally makes it harder to get a job. but he was able to move from fort tworgt -- fort worth to washington and get hired by a subsidiary of h.p. to update a computer system. when you look at the guy's past, you're wondering how did this guy wind up with this government access card. >>elisabeth: working as a contractor, allowed into this place doesn't seem to make sense. if he is already discharged, his father is quoted as saying he has ptsd. he seemed to have anger issues, in the past
shooting a gun through the roof in his apartment as someone was aggravating him. >>steve: the neighbor lady. shot the tires out of a honda accord sitting in a driveway next to his house because he felt like these two construction workers were disrespecting it. what does he do? he pumped lead into their tires. >>brian: mayor rudy giuliani not only trying to keep the city secure for years, he also has his own security company. he weighed in last night. >> the idea that he had a security clearance, fine. but that doesn't allow him to bring a gun in. security clearance means he has access to information. if he's carrying something in, it should be searched. >>brian: no one cleared him to have guns. >> i travel to washington. i go to the house. i go to the senate. i used to go to the white house. not anymore. awhile back. i go with police officers and security people. they have to check their weapons. they all get checked out. first of all, we have too many people with security
clearances. at four million, it is impossible to vet accurately. snowden certainly demonstrates that. but if we're also carrying over the security clearance to allowing people to bring weapons in, we're really making a terrible, terrible mistake. >>brian: he also has a history not only -- that's a good point. but you talk about this guy's background, he's got a friend who said, yeah, he had an obsession with shooting video games. he would come over and he'd be playing so long, these video shooting games, we'd have to give him dinner. we'd feed him while he continued to stay on them. later dr. keith ablow will talk about is there a relationship between shooting video games and the way you act in real life. >>elisabeth: are more people maybe more susceptible to others than playing video games? is there a link between a certain age group -- 20 to 34-year-old men playing video games -- and their
violent actions? we have yet to find out. >>steve: unfortunately, it seems like every time something bad like this happens we look at is there a connection between video games and the shooter? take a look at some people who were described as addicted to video games. from columbine high school, eric harris and dylan klebold, the virginia tech shooter, that norway shooter, i think he shot 77 people. the aurora people james holmes, sandy hook shooter adam lanza all described as essentially being addicted to video games. dr. keith ablow was on the program talking about this. he said these games in many cases need a warning simply so people know they can be addictive and psychologically damaging. >>brian: a lot of people do, have absolutely no problem. and i believe there is warning on a lot of these games. >>elisabeth: what about frequency testing.
how often has this game been played? i'm not one to say monitor everything but if this indeed is a strong link to mass killings, why aren't we looking at frequency per person and how often are they playing? maybe they time out after a certain hour. >>steve: it's interesting stuff. if there was an age cutoff as was suggested with adam lanza and kids, this guy is 34 years old so it wouldn't necessarily apply. more on this coming up. in the meantime a lot of news breaking overnight. for that, let's go to heather nauert. >> good morning to you guys. we've got a lot of stuff going on this morning. we begin at this hour with these incredible images of the costa concordia cruise ship. it took 19 hours in total but now that ship is sitting upright off the coast of italy. look at this and see how much damage there was. the bow is almost completely mangled. you can see sections caved
in. the color of the ship has turned from white to brown. now that the ship has been righted it will be strengthened to better withstand the winter months and be towed away and turned into scrap next year. a live look at the white house dark there right now but it was on lockdown yesterday for 30 minutes. a guy threw fireworks over the north fence at the white house. this happened so soon after that shooting rampage at the navy yard, police seen tackling the suspect to the ground. he has now been identified and is in custody at this hour. this morning the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed college football player heads to court. he faces manslaughter charges for shooting jonathan ferrell ten times. ferrell was looking for help after he crashed his car. when police responded to the scared homeowners, he ran toward the cop car and
the officer opened fire. this morning his mother says she forgives that officer. more on that later. >> a nice story to bring you this morning. an emotional reunion caught on camera. [crying] [music] >> my gosh. that is army staff sergeant brandon ticket surprising his nine-year-old son in illinois. he is seeing him for the first time in nine months. picket returned from his third deployment to afghanistan. as many times as we see those videos, it always just gets you. >>steve: you can hear that little cry there. breaks your heart. >> welcome home. >>brian: you're in afghanistan, you are absolutely at risk. >>elisabeth: nine months
is a long time away from a daddy. >>brian: 12 minutes after the hour. straight ahead on this show, we have just learned how much money convicted killer nidal hasan made while sitting behind bars. the amount will make you sick. and that is not all. >>elisabeth: he waited his whole life to make this play and the coach said putting him in the game was the best thing he's ever done. ♪ ♪ is this the bacon and cheese diet? this is the creamy chicken corn chowder. i mean, look at it. so indulgent. did i tell you i am on the...

gunman, 34-year-old aaron alexis, what will be the next step in the investigation? here on the phone is former d.c. homicide detective rod wheeler. good morning. what is the first thing officers do today when they return to the navy yard? >> the investigation, even though the situation happened yesterday, it is continuing on today. there is a lot of unanswered questions that police currently have in terms of the suspect, the shooter. one, the most important question is how was it that he was able to gain access to the navy base? so the viewers know, there is about three different ways you can actually gain access to the navy base, two of which you can actually access and bypass security. that's through the garage. i'm very familiar with where that garage is located. what happens, though, if you have an access card like this guy had -- he had an access card as a contractor -- once you get on the base you're supposed
to be able to show that card to gain further access. i think that's the point he initially encountered the navy police officer. >>steve: he had a government access -- government contractor access card that was updated in july. so it was good. he could swipe it that way, be able to bypass security. but the question is how did he wind up with this government access card? i mean, he was in the navy reserve but he was kicked out for a couple of arrests. he was given a general discharge and a general discharge generally makes it harder to get a job in the civilian world. not so in this case. >> you're exactly right, steve. here's the thing. a contractor doing business with the federal government or a military base, they go through somewhat of a background check. but the background check is limited in scope. so the question remains, do we need to start doing more extensive background checks on contractors? there's thousands contractors on the navy base, on army bases each
and every day, and we know for a fact that some of these contractors have criminal history. so i think the question now is going to be do we need to start doing a more extensive background check to try to weed these individuals out? and were there warning signs with this guy alexis. as we know now, there appears to have been. >>steve: absolutely. in one case he didn't like the way a car was parked in 2004 in seattle and shot the tires out from under a honda accord. then he shot one of his apartments where the lady who lived upstairs or downstairs was making too much noise. those to me seem like some warnings signs. >> they definitely were warning signs. unfortunately hindsight is 20/20. we'll look at the procedures we use for folks to gain access to all of our naval bases.
not only that, what about the weapon that the guy had? what kind of background check was done there? all of these questions will be answered hopefully as the days go by. >>steve: rod, thank you. 20 minutes after the top of the hour on this tuesday. next on this program, it is the biggest property seizure in american history. the reason? the owners of this building used the rent to funnel money to iran. of course. crazy. the details are straight ahead, and they're stunning. this man has a message for america. he says grow a pair. if you're tired of the wuss i f i cation of the country.

>>brian: quick headlines. while you were sleeping, william daley ending his run for governor. the former white house chief of staff saying he realizes it is not what he wants to do for the next five to nine years. that happens. the nation's highest military honor will go to william splintsin. he will become the second u.s. service member to win the medal of honor. >>steve: time to take responsibility for everything. our next guest is here to tell us how you can stop being a victim with some tough love. his new book called "grow a pair" is all about taking control of your life. and apparently he's into
horticulture. >>elisabeth: joining us now is the pit bull of personal development, larry wingett. welcome. how do you know if you need to grow a pair? >> if everybody can look at their life and say do my kids talk back to me? grow a pair. if you're having to pick up the slack for lazy co-workers, you might need to grow a pair. look at how people treat you and you'll know. people treat you like you allow them to treat you. if you feel you're being put down or disrespected in any way, you need to grow a pair. >>brian: not sue. not sue people for being mean to you, not run to human resources. >> look them in the eye and have a stern conversation. >>brian: are you worried we're not doing this? >> i'm not worried. i know that's the case. we have become a huge nation of weenies. nobody stands up for
themselves, nobody stands up to anybody else and they need to learn to do that. >>steve: we've all become victims. if we're not a victim we're going to talk ourselves into it. take this test at home. are you a victim? do people take advantage of you? do friends talk back to you? do you allow your children to talk back to you? those were some of the things we talked about a moment ago. a lot of people out there now are saying i guess my kids do talk back to me and my neighbors do disrespect me. what do i do? >> you grow a pair. >>elisabeth: what do you do? >> first of all, stop whining. most people complain this is how bad my life is and they don't do a darned thing about it. then you take action on what you know is right. you also get real clear about what your priorities are and what you believe in and what you are never going to be willing to compromise. you have something you're not going to compromise on, don't you? i won't be lied to. will you? >>steve: i hate that. >> i will not be lied to. you lie to me, we will
never talk again, never do business again. >>elisabeth: that is across the board. in marriage, in work. >> don't lie to me. i'll deal with any problem no matter how bad it is. don't lie to me. everybody should have those lines drawn in the sand in their lives. >>brian: the question is, do you know when people are lying to you? here's the thing why you should feel good. when someone like ross perot jumps on the scene when he did, people embraced him because he was telling it like it is. he ended up going off the rails but that is besides the point. governor christie became a national figure because no script there, telling people off when he had to, supporting them when he also had to. doesn't that encourage you that there is a pharbt -- market for your beliefs? >> i'm real popular because of these beliefs. i don't care what people think. >>elisabeth: what do you say to parents how to deal when someone attacking
their kids? >> you can never legislate bullying out of our society. teach your kids not to be a victim. sticks and stones will break my bones. words will never hurt me. we've heard that growing up. you've got to teach your kids you are not going to play the victim. i can show you kids in wheelchairs with severe disabilities. they are not victims because of the way they have been trained and taught by their parents to not feel like a victim. growing a pair is about an attitude and we can help people develop that attitude. >>steve: you can download his book, go out and buy it. it is called "grow a pair: how to stop being a victim." larry winget. >>elisabeth: the navy yard's shooter's violent past coming to light. why was he given access to a security facility? judge napolitano explains how it works next. >>steve: for breakfast, why you should eat the doughnut instead of the

>>brian: we're learning more about the deadly shooting at the nay shall yard -- naval yard. investigators focus today on what motivated this former navy reservist to kill 12 people, injure 14 others. he had a history of violence including seven shooting incidents. >>elisabeth: last night police searched a hotel in southwest d.c. where alexis had been staying for at least two days before this shooting. it is believed alexis did act alone. >>steve: as the investigation continues many wondering how did the shooting suspect get security clearance with his past and could we have flagged him sooner? >>brian: here to weigh in is fox news judicial analyst andrew napolitano. judge, from what you know right now, should we have been picking up some signs on this guy? and should he be having a gun to get in there? >> we know a couple of things. we know the government does not adequately vet its
vendors. whatever you think of the constitutional wisdom of what edward snowden did, the government didn't know he was there. the government didn't know this guy was there. the government didn't know this guy carried a gun and the government didn't care this guy carried a gun. the government doesn't adequately communicate between security officials -- forthood -- or security officials at the washington navy yard and people letting others on to the property. issue number one. issue number two is washington, d.c., the nation's capital, the most antigun city in the country. a tphaefl officer carrying a gun at the washington naval yard could not carry it home in his car to get home lest he be stopped and get arrested. we have a local problem and a problem with the military. if you cannot trust military officers to carry weapons on a military base after fort hood and after this, people don't believe in the second amendment at all. >>elisabeth: what's the
future here? gun control laws is obviously going to be the debate. >> i happen to believe where there are more guns, there is less crime. i believe if naval officers had been armed yesterday, fewer people would have been killed. i also believe crackpots like this guy knowing every other person he could confront would be armed he would think twice or three times or a hundred times before he would do it. >>steve: essentially the navy yard is a gun-free zone. everybody in there yesterday was a sitting duck except the security officers who had guns and it sounds like he may have shot at least one to get a gun. >> the security officers -- i was watching with peter doocy -- were heroic with what they did but there's not enough of them. like in new york city, can't be everywhere. >>brian: "time" magazine talked about how they cut back security at that naval base and that might be the focus of a scandal. >> if i could say anything
to the chief of naval operations, i would ask why is it that your own people can't carry weapons to protect their colleagues and federal property when they are on federal installations. >>steve: an excellent question. i understand a lot of people who were on that particular campus, if you will, were civilian contractors so they weren't even military. >> like this guy. >>elisabeth: what about video games, judge? what's your theory on that? should we be policing them? >> this i did not know about his personal background. when the government gives a vendor a gun or when the government brings a vendor into government property, it needs to know about the individual. so it obviously needs to have a better way of finding things about people. i'm not one who believes that video games cause murder, but obviously there's a bunch of warning signs they could have found about this guy and they didn't. >>brian: i will say this. i played space invaders. so should somebody come from another galaxy, i am
red d.w.i. -- i am ready to defend our planet. >> do you still play? >>brian: no. >> elisabeth, welcome. when i started at fox, the a neo for me. >>steve: they built a piece of furniture. a brand-new curvy couch. >> this is fabulous. i saw kilmeade sleeping here about 3:30 this morning. >>brian: a lot more stories happening this hour. how do i know? heather nauert has been scrambled to read out lout. >> good morning. serious news to bring you now. we just learned you and this is pretty upsetting news. nidal hasan collected nearly $300,000 in military pay while he waited trial for murdering 13 people. that we know. but the victims and their families will never likely see a penny of that. that is because hasan's attorney said nearly all that money has gone to
charity. this as several of the shooting survivors struggle to pay their medical bills. it doesn't help that that massacre is still classified as workplace violence and not an act of terror. hasan is now on death row. by the way, his attorneys will not disclose the charity. this would be the largest property seizure in all of u.s. history, a judge ruling the feds can seize this 36-story office building, a -- on new york city's fifth avenue. a judge determined the owners did this. they collected rent and then they funneled all of that money to iran. the money from that property seizure would go to the families of victims of terror attacks that were assisted by that country. this includes the victims of 9/11. the guy accused of trying to ex--- extort $250 million from paula deen has been sentenced to time

though the weather forecast is for dry conditions and for the foggy conditions and the mist to continue to clear. generally drier weather over the next several days but we need time for those flood waters to recede. in mexico, we've had two storm systems impacting that country. ingrid and what's left of manuel, looking at up to 25 inches of rain possible. flooding and mudslides a major concern out there. >>elisabeth: thank you. crews managed to pull the wrecked costa concordia upright. you're looking at the ship live right now. we have james mathews in italy with the latest. what can you tell us right now? >> i could tell you that it went according to text. this was a cliffhanger operation, very difficult for salvage teams to tease
this monster off the underwater reef. they reckoned they had a 97% chance of success. what we got is what you see behind me. it's not a pretty sight but in terms of salvage engineering, it is as good as it gets. the ship is upright. that means they can begin in earnest the search for two people who remain missing after this disaster in january 2012. they have searched for those two bodies before but now they can get access to the cabins. amongst all the tragedy, this in terms of engineering and salvage is one of triumph. >>brian: i don't know how the heck they did that, but they did it. thanks a lot, james. >>elisabeth: next on the rundown, big news out of hollywood. leonardo dicaprio has his eyes on the white house? thinking about breakfast, turns out a glass of orange juice is not as healthy as it looks. is it worse than a krispy

>> elisabeth: we were talking sugar here. obviously people are trying to cut it down. why is it so bad, especially if it's in something like a yogurt? >> sugar is good for you. you need sugar in order to survive. one part, glucose s what the cells need in order for us to move. the bad part is the fructose. any time you see that, that's bad news. when you see loft fructose, it basically goes to the liver. then a lot of it cannot get absorbed, so it gets stored as fat, that's where we get obesity. it messes up the cholesterol, so that goes up. it makes you insulin resistance so you get diabetes. when you get all of that stuff, it's called metabolic syndrome. that's what's killing this country. >> steve: you got to be careful with the amount of sugar you eat. >> and fructose. >> steve: you show simple yogurts. as it turns out, one has as much sugar as 2.6 -- >> isn't it amazing?
this is low fat, steve. we emphasize low fat. but guess how much sugar you have. almost 2 1/2 times. >> elisabeth: wow. i know everyone is working out. >> steve: a water. >> elisabeth: this is the equivalent to? >> this has a lot of republican mal and vitamins. that's what i liked about it. but you got to be careful because it almost has 32-grams of sugar. so it's -- >> steve: it's water! and it has as as 3.2. >> that's a lot of doughnuts just by drinking this healthy drink. >> elisabeth: krispy kreme doughnut is what we're comparing. >> steve: this is a bottle of orange juice. you figure it's got to be good for you. >> this gets me up and running. now i'm worried about this because guess what? how much sugar is in there? almost 36 grams. that's a lot of sugar right there. >> elisabeth: this is the equivalent much how many? 3 1/2 krispy kreme doughnuts? >> exactly. >> elisabeth: surely you're not
suggesting if you have the choice, choose this over this? >> this is healthy, but you want to take moderation. as long as you know what you're putting in your system, all of that frock toes is causing -- fructose is causing obesity. i know you guys love salad. here is one of the examples of chicken salad from california pizza chicken, that's healthy. right? guess how much sugar is in there? 45 grams of sugar. >> elisabeth: come on. >> seriously. that's a lot of sugar. >> steve: equivalent to five doughnuts. >> healthy breakfast, some orange juice and there you go, that's lot of sugar you're getting. that's almost equivalent to 15 doughnuts just for breakfast and lunch. so the big message is, it's okay in moderation. take some of this. be careful and look for the labels for fructose. that's what's really causing all the problems. >> steve: we'll be label readers. >> elisabeth: thanks for the sweet talk. we loved having you on. my first time, so that is fun. up next, the president said if you like your doctor, you can
keep your doctor. what if your doctor has decided to call it quits? we will examine the disastrous effects of obamacare next ♪ ho ho ho [ female announcer ] at 100 calories, not all food choices add up. some are giant. some not so giant. when managing your weight, bigger is always better. ♪ ho ho ho ♪ green giant [ alarm sound for malfunctioning printer ] [ male announcer ] you've reached the age where you've learned a thing or two.

>> elisabeth: good morning. today is tuesday, september 17, i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. a fox news alert. brand-new information. a gunman who shot and killed 12 people in the naval yard in washington, d.c., clues from his past and connections that led to other mass shooters. >> brian: it's too soon to know why the shooter attacked, but it's not too soon to ignite the gun debate, i guess. antigun advocates, along with the white house already weighing in, making this political. >> steve: now for something completely different, the robertson family built a duck dynasty brand on their original duck call. remember? >> it should make a sound. >> steve: what is that duck
saying? >> that's more like a funny favor. >> steve: like a kazoo. can we pull off duck calling? he'll show elisabeth how to make one. >> brian: how do you know? >> steve: 'cause i was standing next to her in west monroe, louisiana, when it all happened. "fox & friends" live from new york city starts right now. >> hi, everybody. i'm huey lewis. at that point stand by -- stand by for the news. >> brian: i wonder how he's doing? >> steve: i haven't heard from him in a little while. >> brian: did you check your voice mail this morning? >> steve: i did. i got the e-mail from willie robertson. he saw yesterday's episode. this is duck week on "fox & friends." we went down to west monroe, louisiana and talked to the entire robertson family. he thought yesterday's episode was great. we got four more, a great one today, all did duck calls. he shows you exactly how it whittle it how. >> brian: jay called and
fundamentally, that's how they made their money and made their fame. they make unique duck calls. he used to sit and listen to ducks for hours by the pond in order to mirror it. it's a fascinating story. let's get to that fox news alert, if that's possible. we now know more about the former navy reservist who opened fire at the washington naval yard and terrorized everyone, killing 12 people before being taken out by police. >> elisabeth: fox news confirming aaron alexis had a history of violence, including several shooting incidents. peter doocy, one of the first at the naval yard yesterday is here live with the latest. thank you for joining us this morning. we know you had a long day yesterday. >> i can tell you that when we first arrived yesterday, as you saw, swat teams and ambulances were speeding toward the scene and shortly after we arrived, we saw helicopters making these daring roof rescues trying to save wound victims. but by the end of the day, the
sirens were quiet and the medical examiner's office was here because before police were able to neutralize the shooter, he carried three guns, an ar-15 rifle, a shotgun, and a hand gun during an attack that killed 12 and we now know seven of their names. 59-year-old michael arnold, 53-year-old sylvia frazier, 62-year-old kathy guard. 73-year-old john roger johnson, 50-year-old frank kohler, 46-year-old kenneth bernard johnson, and 61-year-old visnu pandit. most of the carnage was in 197, the headquarters fort naval systems command and the stories from people who survived that attack are terrifying. >> someone in my -- i don't know who, some unsung hero, but who works for me, locked the
exterior doors. so we were locked in to that area and then everybody went into either interior offices or that conference room and barricaded ourselves in. we were there. that happened sometime between 8 and 8:30. a little while later we heard a very loud gunshot and looked up and saw the door bullet holes in the conference room walls above us. we stayed on the floor. >> here is what we know about the short. 34 years old, aaron alexis. had two civilian arrests on his record. one for unlawfully discharging a weapon and one for disorderly conduct. he was a navy reservist for about four years before that gun charge and he recently worked as a subcontractor for a computer company. that's how he got a valid pass to enter the navy yard and his security clearance was reportedly approved just this summer. back to you in new york. >> steve: all right. thank you very much.
>> elisabeth: joining us now is a former senior f.b.i. social and coo, don. we're talking about profiling or getting into the mix in terms of what is in the mind of a killer like we're seeing and have seen for the past two days? and why did background checks not occur in terms of contractors with access to the naval yard? >> i'm not going to say that they didn't occur. i think the thing that is going to be appropriate here is what was the scope of that background check? it was just reported that it was recently his clearance was renewed, so in many cases, your background check is good for five years. the original background check can be pretty extensive, but then the renewal might be less extensive in scope and so it will be important to look at what was the scope of the background check and then what was actually done. >> steve: it sounds like this fellow moved from fort worth to the washington, d.c. area about a month ago.
but it's interesting, given the fact that peter just detailed, he had been arrested a couple times, one time he shot the tires out of somebody's car who he was hacked off at and another time the neighbor lady was making too much noise and he fired some bullets into her apartment. you would think at that those would be warning signs. >> it's crazy. it's common sense, you would think how could a person with this background get a job? in most cases, workplace violence is prevented by doing a thorough investigation of pre-- pre-employment investigation. >> brian: what's stopping it? is it too expensive? >> in some cases, it's the law. for example, an employer may be able to ask about convictions, but not arrests. i don't know in this particular case it will be important to see the subcontractor, what did the pre-employment application look like? how much did they know about this person when they hired him? did they do their due diligence first because again, this is the best way to prevent workplace
violence is screen these people out before they get hired. >> elisabeth: especially in aaron alexis' case, there were no convictions. there were arrests. what about the video game connection? what's your note on that in terms of a profiling or is this a significant fact that we should be looking at more closely? >> i think it's tough to -- that's a tough call on video games. they're so popular. millions of people play video games. the average person that plays them doesn't go out and do heinous things, although we have seen incidents in the past where people that have -- they do that. i think it's too early to draw a correlation. >> steve: i'm curious what the standard is, given the fact that he was apparently kicked out of the navy reserves given these gun event, the areas, although he was not charged, you know, do these contractors, these defense contractors have the same standards from business to business? does the federal government require people to look into this, this and this? >> i think all security
clearances are not created equal. i know just from my own personal experience with the f.b.i., you have polygraphs, extensive background investigations, financial history and all these things because you're given some of the most sensitive secrets that the united states has as opposed to maybe somebody with limited access to those type of secrets might have a background investigation that's lesser in scope. >> brian: how do you feel about arming those on a military base? >> well, in theory, these are all people that are trained to carry weapons. the military people go through -- >> brian: they go to afghanistan and shoot people. >> they go through many hours of weapons training. again, i think that's probably a question that i would leave to military officials that actually are involved in security for the base to know which is the proper way to go. >> brian: you guys walk around the office with a gun, right? >> absolutely. >> steve: right. tom, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> elisabeth: great insight. for the rest of this morning's
headlines, let's go over to heather nauert. >> this morning, the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed former college football player heads to court. officer randle kerik faces manslaughter charges for shooting jonathan ferrell ten times. he was looking for help after he crashed his car. he knocked on the door of a woman's house. when police responded to the scared homeowner's call, he ran toward the cop car and that's when the officer opened fire. also this morning, his mother says she forgives that officer. take a look at these incredible live pictures of the costa concordia ship. it's sitting upright off the coast of italy. you can see just how much damage was done. give it a moment. the balconies, completely mangled, sections caved in all together. the color of the ship has turned from white to brown. now that the ship has been righted, it will be strengthened to better withstand the winter and towed away and eventually
turned into scrap metal. let's look at the white house this morning. it was locked down for 30 minutes yesterday. the reason? police say that a man threw fireworks over the north fence. crowds of tourists were terrified. the popping sounds were heard so soon after the shooting at the navy yard. police tackling the suspect to the ground and he's now been identified as alexander saalgan and in custody at this hour. scary moments for beyonce. she was at a concert in brazil and gets yanked off the stage practically by a fan. take a look at this. ♪ >> the guy rushes the stage, practically gives her a bear hug. throws his arms around her and almost pulls her head first into the crowd. after she was helped back up by security, she finished the song.
how do you do that? as for the fan, she let him stay in the audience and watch the rest of the show. imagine her security wasn't too happy about that one. those are your headlines. >> brian: that's the second time she was attacked by a fan. once it was a mechanical fan. that was a legitimate fan because he was so attracted to her. jay-z must have felt the same way. >> steve: i think he loved her so much -- >> elisabeth: he's huggable. he probably didn't mean it. >> steve: if she's letting him stay fort rest of the show, not a bad thing. >> elisabeth: right. >> steve: all right, coming up, it's 7 : 11 in new york city and it's video that's gone viral, sparking outrage. many claiming this teen hauling the tiger shark to shore is animal abuse. did the kid go too far? we'll talk about that. >> brian: and the president said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. but what if your doctor has decided to call it quits? can we still keep him?

♪ every now and then i get a little bit hungry ♪ ♪ and there's nothing good around ♪ ♪ turn around barry ♪ i finally found the right snack ♪ ♪ >> elisabeth: brand-new fox poll released moments ago show 43% of voters are increasingly concerned with their health care under president obama's troubled reform act. and that number only expected to get worse as doctors continue to drop out of the health care industry overall. here to explain, james freeman from the "wall street journal" editorial board. thanks for being here today. certainly something that's kind
of scary. why are doctors opting out or dropping out in states? >> you showed that survey of patients and doctors and when you survey them, they say medicine is not what they signed up for. many of them say they're considering leaving and it's a situation where you basically -- obamacare is coming on top of a lot of other problems that have encouraged them to look elsewhere. heavy liability costs, six figures a year just to insure yourself against lawsuits. the lawyers often make more than the doctors that they're suing. it's been a tough pile of paperwork they've had to deal with and now obamacare adds still more. >> elisabeth: looking at a shortage, 54% of people want to go back to the system in 2009. but take a look at this. we have the number of primary care physicians in nevada, texas, idaho, utah, mississippi, these are the lowest number of physicians in the states. what's going on here?
can they not keep pace? >> we're not creating that many doctors relative to an aging population, more demand for health care services. but as i said, particularly in certain specialties and in general practitioner work. we've seen in this city, very hard to get a medicare or medicaid doctor. they don't want to take on new patients. they're really being squeezed when you think of they come out of medical school with enormous debts and then this -- these are six-figure income, low six figure if you're a general practitioner, but it's often not a great line of work when you consider all the paperwork. that's why you're seeing these trends with people saying i want out of the system. doctors saying, i want to treat patients. i want to get back to real medicine. >> elisabeth: you have americans saying they want out. over half want to go back to 2009. doctors saying they want out. i thought obamacare was supposed to help us out.
>> it will do two things to exacerbate that problem. you're forcing more people into the system through insurance. so the patient population demanding appointments is going up. also you're clamping down -- if you look at the white house strategy as we head into all these budget fights, their answer pretty much going forward is going to be squeeze the providers. less payments to doctors. i think you're going to see more of this. it's a small trend now, but doctors wanting to go outside the system. i want to treat you, i want to work with patients. i don't want to deal with the government regulated market. >> elisabeth: sounds like an already broken system right now. we thank you. >> thanks. >> elisabeth: real info right here. next, we just learned how much money convicted niller nidal hasan made while sitting behind bars. then if you're look for love, dave ramsey is up next why do people count on sunsweet prune juice to stay fit on the inside?

>> steve: time for news by the numbers. first issues up, 300,000. that's how much military pay fort hood shooter, nidal hasan got while awaiting trial. his victims likely won't see any of the money. 110. that's the number of days gas has been more than $3 a gallon. finally, 5,000. that's how much nasa is willing to pay a month to study couch potatoes. they're trying to figure out how micro gravity impacts the body. i'm available for less than
$5,000. >> brian: forget the pricey dinners or expensive gifts. according to new research, thrifty is the new sexy. >> elisabeth: really? in other words, savers make better lovers than spenders. we're going to ask rachel cruz, you may know her as dave ramsey's daughter. >> steve: of course. that means you're thrifty, period. >> i try. i'm a spender naturally. >> elisabeth: but you spend in cash, right? >> yeah. no credit cards. >> elisabeth: no credit cards. >> right. >> steve: it's interesting, you say that when people start dating, pay close attention to the other person. >> yeah. >> steve: if they're a big spender, not a good sign. >> well, yes. you don't want them to live completely out of their lifestyle. if they have no money and charging everything on credit cards, buying cars they can't afford, that's not great. >> steve: but they're kind of fun. >> i guess so. in the short run. make sure they have self-control. that's key. don't commit financial infidelity either. you want to make sure that you talk to the person you're dating about money.
if it's getting serious, talk to them about how much money do you make? how much debt do you have? >> elisabeth: at what point do you do that in the relationship? right away? in terms of spousal relationship inif i dillity, when does that begin? >> not the first date. as it's getting serious, because sadly, money fights and money problems is one of the main causes of divorce. it's big deal within marriage. when you're beginning to be serious, you need to have those conversations. >> brian: we're reaching our debt ceiling on our visa. here is the thing, let's say you want to go out to eat and the guy you're dating does not. hey, let's just make something at home. let's go get a cake, we have to go to a birthday party. let's make our own cake. can that get annoying? >> yeah. you don't want to marry a cheapskate. >> brian: exactly. >> so yeah, there is a difference there. but opposites attract. so obviously you're probably going to marry your opposite. if you're a spender, you'll marry a saver. >> brian: can you change somebody, do you think? have you done that part of the
study? >> well, no. i think naturally you're either a spender or saver. as an adult, you have to be mature and say i can't save anything. i need to have a little fun and i can't spend everything because i'll be broke. there has to be balance. >> steve: so the allure of the saver is financially and physically fit, they're more attractive and self-disciplined? >> that's what they say. i think it makes sense. again, i wouldn't marry someone just because they're a saver. i'm a spender. my husband married me. so i'm thankful for that. yeah, there needs to be a balance. >> elisabeth: the connection between finances and physical health, that's interesting, though. what do they mean? >> it is. what's funny is our whole thing is about getting out of debt. people say i paid off $78,000 in debt and i lost 70 pounds in the process. i think when you have discipline in your life, it trickles to the other areas. >> steve: i think it's amazing that you're dave ramsey's daughter and you're a spender. >> yes, i know! dad is actually naturally a spender, too. >> elisabeth: is he? >> brian: did he make that mistake at one point? didn't he learn along the way? >> sure. mom and dad declared bankruptcy
when i was six months old. they were living way beyond their means. >> brian: how does that affect you? >> i don't remember it as an infant. but growing up, i remember buying stuff at garage sales, not being able to go out to eat. so there are sacrifices they made early on that i remember, which is huge 'cause that shapes who i am today. >> elisabeth: of course. i like this advice. >> thank you. >> elisabeth: still ahead, how did the navy yard shooter with the violent past get a security clearance? are we giving them out too easily? rudy guiliani on that next. plus, this video sparking outrage. is this teen-ager hauling a tiger shark to shore animal abuse? we report. you decide. >> steve: it is a shark ♪ ho ho ho

the neighborhood around the washington navy yard, that has been lifted because dc's police chief says she's very comfortable now that there is only one suspect in this case. nobody else. yesterday there was certainly some questions to whether there may have been a second shooter on the scene. they're still processing the scene here. we're going to try to take a live picture now of building 197 where we believe that most of the shooting occurred here yesterday. starting about 8:15 in the morning, witnesses telling us it was mainly on the third and fourth floor. the f.b.i. is now taking over this investigation. the washington navy yard this morning is open only to mission essential personnel while investigators, as we've seen this morning, they're continuing to go inside that building to search for and document evidence. we do think that it is perhaps -- that some of the victims' bodies may still be inside that building this morning. the f.b.i. still looking for information. last night they did go to a local hotel here, marriott
hotel, where they believe that aaron alexis may have been staying. we know he moved here to washington, d.c. not too long ago, sometime this spring to take a job with a navy contractor. we also know he was a navy reservist. the f.b.i. is saying that he did have a valid pass to get in the building, but at this point, we don't know whether he actually had reason to be inside this building. we don't know if any of his victims, if he knew any of them personally or not. we are still getting -- hearing some of the stories this morning from some of those victims. only seven have been identified thus far. all of them civilian employees who just came here to the navy yard on a monday morning trying to get started for a regular workweek. many of those who survived yesterday say they're going to have a hard time going back to work at a place they once felt safe. >> brian: thanks so much. the question is, too, did he walk in with a gun? did he walk in with two guns? did he walk in with a rifle? was there a metal detector there? we know this, that he got in legally. he didn't fight his way in or
shoot his way in. >> steve: because he had a government contractor access card. as we heard from rod wheeler in the first hour, there are a couple of locations where if you enter via the garage, just swipe the card, you completely bypass the security check. rudy guiliani was on with sean last night. maybe too many people have these cards. >> the idea that he had a security clearance, fine. but that doesn't allow him to bring a gun in. security clearance means he has access to information. if he's carrying something in, it should be searched. no one cleared him to have guns. i travel to washington. i go to the house. i go to the senate. i used to go to the white house. >> not anymore. >> not lately. i go with police officers and security people. they have to check their weapons. they all get checked out. first of all, we have too many people with security clearances.
4 million, it's impossible to vet accurately. snowden certainly demonstrates that. if we're also kind of carrying over the security clearance to allow people to bring weapons in, then we're really making a terrible, terrible mistake. >> steve: when we lived in the washington, d.c. area a couple of our neighbors were government contractors, worked for the pentagon and whatnot. every year or two, somebody would come and do a background check and say, okay. you live next to that guy. isn't big drinker? kinda. what do you mean? >> elisabeth: they would ask you? >> steve: yeah. you ever see him smoke pot? given the fact that this particular guy was arrested twice, once for shooting the tires out of a car and once for shooting a hole into his neighbor's apartment, you would think that one of the neighbors, when he gets one of these security clearances, would say, he's a great guy. kind of a hot head with the guns though. >> elisabeth: right. because having those arrests may not have shown up on the second
round of questioning, right? so when he goes to have a renewal of that clearance, that information may not be known otherwise. right? through a friend or family or relative. >> brian: i know what you're saying. okay. this is an american tragedy. what does russia think? good question. it turns out they're jumping on this american exceptionalism thing. putin tweaked us in that column. head of the foreign affairs committee in russia says this, quote, nobody is even surprised anymore. clear confirmation a new shootout in washington, a lone gunman, seven corpses. nobody is even prized. -- surprised. he says a clear confirmation of america exceptionalism. tongue in cheek. so there you go. game on. cold war is back. little by little. >> elisabeth: over twitter. >> steve: not very funny. it is 25 minutes now before the top of the hour. lots of other stories making
headlines right now. we go over to heather nauert. >> good morning to you. this may be the largest property -- a judge ruled the feds can seize a 36-story office building on new york's swanky fifth avenue. you can see it right here. it's apparently worth about $700 million. this judge determined that the owner, they apparently collected rent and then funneled that money to iran in violation of sanctions against that country. funds from the property seizure would go to the victims of terrorist. it includes the victims of 9-11 and also the 1983 marine barracks bombing in beirut. dog owners are told to be extra careful this morning after rat poison was found inside a dog park in crystal, minnesota. one dog was exposed to that poison, but luckily, the owner caught it in time. the dog didn't get sick. investigators say that it is the first case of its kind in this community and they're hoping
that they catch the culprit. it's the incredible moment a gas station worker fights off a knife-wielding robber with his own shoe. take a look take. it's a shoe! the worker takes off his shoe to hit one of the suspects, despite being stabbed and outnumbered, he forces them out of the store empty handed. how about that? the man had to get 12 stitches to his arm, but he's okay. police in england hope the surveillance video will help them track down the suspects. this video of a man capturing a tiger shark in hawaii is sparking outrage. animal lovers are upset about the treatment of this animal and some are now calling it abuse. the founder of ocean defender hawaii, an organization that's committed to animal protection, is now asking for an apology. the state says that nothing illegal was done, that they can see in this video. local fishermen apparently really love this shark. they say they tamed her and they referred to her as laverne.
>> steve: and shirley? you're kidding! >> brian: the whole island has a pet shark, that's a little different. if you just see a shark in shallow water and you kill it, what's the difference between killing a shark in deep water? >> steve: they didn't kill it. >> elisabeth: they threw it back. they were being nice. >> steve: they were just harass ing. >> brian: what's worse? harassing a shark or harpooning it and tying it to your boat? >> steve: clearly they were harassing it and the peta people -- >> elisabeth: maybe they didn't like the name. >> steve: maybe. >> elisabeth: you never know. >> steve: so that's what's going on in hawaii. not exactly hawaiian weather here in midtown manhattan, maria. >> not exactly hawaii weather here in new york city and the rest of the northeast. i have to tell you, i kind of forgot what 51 degrees feels like with a little breeze. we definitely need a jacket this morning. interior section of the northeast feeling much, much
colder. temperatures early this morning, only in the 30s for parts of upstate new york and also sections of new england. we want to talk about more serious weather and that's parts of colorado where right now fortunately, they are finally drawing things out. they are seeing drier conditions for tuesday and through friday. there is a slight chance for a shower or storm coming up on wednesday. but it's very minimal. about 10% of a chance. that fog and mist that was hampering helicopter rescue efforts has finally cleared. that's good news. so we're looking at better visibility. parts of mexico dealing with what's left of ingrid and manuel. those are two storm systems in the tropics that dissipated. but still a lot of heavy rain expected. some of the higher elevations could be looking at as much as 25 inches of rain. an additional foot possible across lower elevations and eastern parts of mexico. let's head back inside. >> steve: thank you very much. about 20 minutes before the top of the hour. coming up, who is the richest guy in the world? gates, buffet or zuckerberg? the answer is coming up next.

>> it's sean hannity, you're watching my good friends, elisabeth, steve and brian on "fox & friends." i'm watching with you. you just can't see me right now. >> brian: he better be watching. elisabeth, you've done the thing that i thought was impossible. you got sean hannity up and in this set. good job. can you get him back? >> elisabeth: maybe. >> steve: i don't think so. yesterday he was on for about five minutes. it cost him two hours in the car one way to get here. then he went home afterwards. so he spent four hours for that five minutes. sean hannity, you're a patriot. great american. >> elisabeth: great american, sean. that is absolutely right. now we're going to get right to the fox news alert. he was hearing voices, they say. the associated press just reporting that navy yard gunman, aaron alexis, was treated by the u.s. for serious mental illness. peter doocy, one of the first at the navy yard yesterday is there live this morning with the latest. peter, what are you hearing now?
>> we're still waiting to get more details about that new a.p. report about his mental health. but you look around here in southeast washington, d.c. and you can see it is a very quiet morning just outside the washington navy yard. completely different than this time yesterday when just one block away on a public street, i got out of the car and saw a man in full military fatigues running with a rifle toward the navy yard. that was just the beginning of what was a very chaotic monday. later in the morning we saw some dramatic helicopter rescues of victims from the roof top. unfortunately, though, 12 people could not be saved. we now know seven of their names. 59-year-old michael arnold, 53-year-old sylvia frazier, 62-year-old kathy guard. 73-year-old john roger johnson. 50-year-old frank kohler.
46-year-old kenneth bernard procter. and 61-year-old vishnu pandit. others were wounded before authorities killed the shooter who carried three guns. ar 15 rifle, shotgun and a hand gun during his assault and the stories from people who made it out of that building alive are terrifying. >> we heard four shots really fast. very rapid. then i just hid behind a brick wall. i didn't know if they were aiming at anybody or anything. it was just really odd because i thought all the shooting had already taken place. just stood there for a while. i said, i got to get out of here. >> the mass murderer, 34-year-old aaron alexis, entered the navy yard with his own i.d he was employed as an hourly subcontractor who fixed computers. aaron alexis was also once a
navy reservist, but was discharged after an arrest for unlawfully firing a gun. witnesses say yesterday he positioned himself on a high floor inside building 197 and had workers on lower levels in the cross hairs and just moments ago as you mentioned during the intro, the a.p. reported that mr. alexis was treated by the united states at some point for what they described as serious mental illness and for hearing voices. we're waiting to get more specifics on that. hopefully we'll get them pretty quick. back to you. >> steve: thank you very much. >> brian: the big news, of course, came yesterday. only one gun. for a while we thought it could be a coordinated attack. if aaron alexis was hearing voices and treated for mental illness, why wasn't this a red flag? how did he get clearance? >> steve: joining us now it weigh in is retired naval intelligence officer steven. good morning. >> good morning. >> steve: that's very troubling. given the fact that he just got a renewal on his government
contractor access card two months ago, there are a lot of red flags that people should have spotted a mile away. >> as each hour passes, the red flags continue to fly. this security clearance should never have been given to him regarding the incident in texas. i went through clearance background check, it took a year for me to get. >> brian: when? >> back in the 1980s, 1990s. >> brian: what has changed? >> that's what i'm trying to figure out. this is revealing two very important factors. one, that there are gaps now in security background checks and two, there is a mental health problem at the military -- that the military has to address. i don't recall going through a mental background check. i recall going through where they looked into my finances, my employment. they came to my neighborhood. i think you said earlier, they asked my neighbors if i drank, if i gamble, if i had a bmw, smoked pot. >> elisabeth: how did the arrest
slip through? are you saying this is an isolated incident or systemic? >> i don't know. i can tell you this, back when i got a security background check, it would be impossible for that to slip through. so they had to do a police record check. what's more troubling is knowing now that the government treated him for mental health issues, it should have been pulled there. so you got two red flags. >> brian: we also see he visited thailand and had been to japan and worked with information technology. so it seems he was able to hold down a job for a while. >> he was a mechanic, working on transports. he had a pretty high clearance to do that. but there are now breakdowns that at least in my view in the security background check system, as well as the mental health issues. >> steve: also u.s. law enforcement officers tell the associated press he had been suffering apparently from a host of serious mental issues, including paranoia and a sleep disorder as well.
>> i'm going to show you something. this is what it takes to get on a military base. that's retired i.d. card. look at the front, your photo is on it. you look at the back, there is a bar code. they scan that. so how did he get on? again in my view, he had an authorized card. he must have had the weapons in the vehicle. if they don't check your vehicles when you have this. if you wanted to go on without this, they would check your vehicle. >> steve: apparently what he did was he had the valid government contractor card and we heard from rod wheeler earlier there were three access points where you go around the security line. just swipe the card. >> the question is, obviously did he go to a gate where they see him routinely, where they would have no reason to stop him? or did he just show this? sometimes we get lax in this law enforcement world, oh, i know you. just go on through. >> steve: i think i read in the "washington post" he was supposed to start work at that particular facility in a week or two. >> there are going to be red flags all over every red military base world wide. they have to take a good look
how they're doing these background checks. >> steve: how many people have been hearing voices? >> i'm sure if that incident in fort worth, we could find out where his police record is. that's how simple it is to get this information. the other problem is that a lot of people are very reluctant to re what they see, especially when somebody has a clearance because on the privacy act, somebody could find out that you went and kind of whistle blew on them. there is too much political correctness and people are very afraid and concerned that if i see someone doing something that can cause a problem, whoa, i'm going to stay out of it. >> brian: i'm not giving them a rifle. look what the a.p. is reporting now. he has been treated since august by the veterans administration for his mental problems. the navy had not cleared him mentally unfit. and would have rescinded his clearance. >> what a breakdown. they should have been obligated to report it to the ncis. maybe they didn't. but therein lies the breakdown.
>> elisabeth: if this is one case, surely and sadly there are more. >> elisabeth, we had hasan, snowden. now we have this guy. where is the next time bomb? so they better get on the ball and start reviewing every security clearance. >> brian: first i'd give everybody on that base that was navy, in the navy the ability to carry a firearm. at least they'd have a shot and wouldn't be sitting ducks should a guy go off the rails. >> that's absolutely right. i was a police officer. i went on military bases. i had to check my gun in. you're right. if there were people armed, guess what? this guy would have probably had less carnage. >> brian: so would hasan. >> yes. >> steve: we're starting to connect the dots. >> thank you. pleasure meeting you. >> steve: about ten minutes after the top of the hour, look at this, incredible images of the wrecked costa concordia cruise ship pulled upright after a 19-hour operation to right her. >> elisabeth: james matthews in italy with the very latest.
>> thanks very much. all good news. this operation, salvage operation going according to plan. she sits upright, but not very pretty. lots of twisted metal on the starboard side of the cost stand concordia. what it must have been like for those 4,000 passengers on board, cabins, walkways, mangled. it's almost lucky that there wasn't more than 32 people killed that night. what happens now? she will be stabilized, then the search will begin in earnest for the two people missing, presumed to be on that ship. previously salvage engineers have been on board, but they have been climbing on the walls because the costa has been on her side. now they can put their feet on the ground and conduct a cabin by cabin search. >> brian: all right. thank you very much. to see that out of the water, that must be a huge relief because that is a tourist area. for the rest of the headlines,
my hunch is heather nauert is poised to deliver. >> good morning to you. we have new news to bring you because police are on the lookout for a young woman in georgia. police frantically searching for this teen-ager. her name is ivani hope perez. cops say the 14-year-old was taken by two armed men at a home invasion in the early morning hours overnight. she's believed to be in extreme danger this morning. the two suspects reportedly fled her family's home, south of atlanta, in a gray dodge after they demanded jewelry and then shot her dog. anyone with information, please call 911 immediately. we'll stay on this one for you. this morning the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed former college football player heads to court. officer randle kerik faces manslaughter charges for shooting jonathan ferrell ten times. he was looking for help after he crashed his car. he then knocked on the door of a woman's house nearby. the woman got scared and then she called police. when ferrell ran toward the
responding officer's car, the officer then opened fire. he waited his entire life to make this play. look here. >> down the right side. touchdown! >> look at that right there. as he makes a touchdown, that is 16-year-old shay, scoring the touchdown of his life. this happened for his louisiana high school football team. that teen-ager is battling muscular dystrophy and is confined to a wheelchair. the coach says that putting him in the game is the best thing he's ever done. good for him. great to see. those are your headlines. >> brian: what about the kid putting him out there, saying i'm gog run the ball and wear the uniform? >> elisabeth: sportsmanship at its best. >> brian: good job. 12 minutes after the hour. coming up, spending the night in a giant freezer.
that's what happens when you're a prince waiting for a job. we have the video and a bizarre story. >> elisabeth: then she battled obamacare. now taking on synthetic drugs. meet today's rising political star, florida's attorney general, pam bondy here right now in studio.

[ garth ] great businesses deserve limited reward
>> brian: since taking off, pam bondy has fought against mortgage and medicaid fraud, stood up for the state rights over health care, battled to shut down dangerous pill mills and taken on human trafficking. >> steve: is that all? >> elisabeth: she's a super hero. she's also gained influence among politicos nationwide. that's why pam bondy is one of our rising political stars.
welcome. >> thank you. i'm so happy to be on the new couch. >> brian: it's brand-new. >> steve: helping us break it in. >> elisabeth: first female a.g., that's incredible. >> only republican female in the country. >> brian: you burst on the national scene really taking on health care. what did that do for your profile? >> well, you just go into this doing what you know is right. that's all you can do. i fought as hard as i could. i firmly believe that this is unconstitutional. and at least the supreme court told us you can not force someone to purchase a product simply by being alive. so we have a long way to go. now we're challenging the navigators that was talked about so much on fox. we're warning people to be careful because they're going to have your personal information. we're having a hard time getting answers. >> steve: the supreme court threw the administration a life line, figuring out a way to keep it legal. there is a new poll out, fox news poll that talks about how

>> steve: fox news alert. the associated press is reporting that the navy yard shooter in washington, d.c., aaron alexis, was apparently treated for serious mental issues by the v.a. because he heard voices, among other things. joining us now with the latest on the investigation, is the mayor of washington, d.c., vincent gray. good morning to you, mr. mayor. >> good morning. >> steve: what's the latest this morning? >> well, we're continuing to try to bring things back to normal as quickly as we possibly can. it was a horrific tragedy yesterday, unlike anything we've ever seen in the district of columbia. 12 people having been shot to death by this man who was legitimately a contractor at the navy yard. >> brian: was he armed when he walked in? >> apparently so.
apparently he was. >> brian: both weapons? >> well, we really don't know the details. that continues to be part of the investigation. apparently he used the hand gun of somebody -- one of the law enforcement officials in the navy yard after he got there. that investigation is continuing to unfold to see what weapons he had, how many weapons he had, and how he used them. >> elisabeth: what's your message to the people there today in terms of going forward, how you see this not happening again and what measures are being taken for better security? >> well, i think first and foremost, we've got to look at the procedures that were in place for contractors and contractor personnel. not only at the navy yard, but other military installations as well. it's clear that i guess the defense department and other military installations are using increasingly contractors to get work done. but we've got to be absolute leisure that those who are part
of those contractor organizations really have been fully vetted. there are certainly many questions around mr. alexis and how he ever got a credential to get in the navy yard in the first place. >> steve: sure. what's troubling is the fact that apparently his security credential was updated in may and yet, the federal government, if he's getting treatment by the v.a. for serious mental issues because he hears voices, among other things, also he's got this past where he shot up a car, shot up a neighbor's apartment, stuff like that. it seems like the federal government is very large, different departments need to be talking to each other so that we know that people who should not have clearance don't get clearance. >> well, we'll certainly look at all those procedures. not us directly as the district of columbia, but i have no doubt that the federal government will thoroughly look at the procedures, the defense department and should there be -- and i suspect there will be -- steps that need to be
taken to make this more effective, i'm sure they will be taken as quickly as possible. >> brian: time magazine says that you cut back on security, or that shipyard has cut back on security. that according to an unnamed pentagon official. have you found that out? >> no. as a matter of fact, i had a meeting last week with the commandante of the navy yard and talk about the fact that the security procedures there seem to be quite effective. we go to events that are at the navy yard quite frequently. so i've been on the yard, the base any number of times and even as i go through there, i have to go through a clearance process. again, all of those procedures will be examined and whatever changes need to be made, i'm certain they will be made. >> elisabeth: have you spoken with the families of the victims today? >> no. we're going to do that. we still were continuing to notify them as of late last night. the identification process went on throughout the day.
as of about 11:00 o'clock last night, seven of the families had been notified. i will personally be speaking with the families of the 12 families. one of the workers lived in the district of columbia. then the others were in maryland and virginia. but i will be speaking with all of them. >> steve: all right. mayor from the bureau in d.c thank you very much. >> thank you. >> brian: he will have one busy day. other break n let's head over to heather nauert for what else is happening. >> good morning to you. today marks the second anniversary -- remember this one -- the occupy wall street movement? activists plan to make the most of it today. there is word that some of the protesters are planning to gather in lower manhattan. their message against what they consider to be corporate greed became really splintered, if you remember this. they were kicked oviducty parked and things fizzled from there. it may be the largest property seizure in u.s. history.
a judge ruling the feds can seize this 36-story office building on new york's swanky fifth avenue. it's estimated to be worth about $700 million. the judge determined that the owners collected rent and then they funneled that money to iran. funds from that seizure would go to the victims of terrorism that was assisted by iran and includes the victims of september 11 as well. nidal hasan has collected nearly $300,000 in military pay while he awaited trial for murdering 13 people in texas. the victims and their families will never likely see a penny of that money and that's because hasan's attorneys say nearly all of it went to charity. they're refuse to go disclose which charities that money supposedly went to. this is several of the survivors struggle to pay their medical bills. it certainly doesn't help that that massacre is still considered workplace violence and not a terrorist attack. hasan is now on death row. here is a nice story. the battle for the ballroom is

we do have significant rainfall expected, locally up to 25 inches of rain possible, especially along some of the higher elevations. otherwise a very chilly start to the day across parts of the northeast. and the great lakes. i want to mention that boston, you actually set a record low early this morning at about 44 degrees. jfk and la guardia came one degree from tying the record low at 49 degrees early this morning. so as you head out the door, grab a jacket. you're going to need it. this afternoon it will feel better. we'll make it into the 60s and 70s. back to you. >> steve: you'll wear it to work and carry it home. >> that's right. >> elisabeth: i'm going to need that jacket. thank you. more on developing story happening now in georgia. police are frantically searching for this teen-ager. the 14-year-old was taken by two armed men during a home invasion. >> steve: joining us live from georgia, reporter carolyn. what can you tell us? >> good morning. i can tell you this young girl, 14 years old, is in extreme
danger this morning. she was abducted from her home in the middle of the night by two gunmen who broke into the family's home. they can't see the home from where we're at. it's down the street. the media is being kept pretty far back in this situation. but police telling us again, two armed men broke into this home through the back door. the mother heard some commotion going on, she dialed 911. as she tried to hide, her two children and that's when police say she came face-to-face with the two intruders and that's when one of them shot and killed the family dog. then at that point, they kidnapped allegedly this 14-year-old girl. at this point police don't have a description of the two suspects other than it was two black males. they say they may have gotten away in a gray dodge or chevy. but at this point, that's the only description we have. again, she's believed to be in extreme danger. these two guys arm and dangerous and out on the run right now

unfolding, calling those involved hero. that was part of remarks sent to a speech on the economy he was planning to give. a lot of folks thought it would be a day he would avoid things partisan in tone. but he accused republicans of sabotage and political posturing. john boehner had this reaction, quote, it's a shame the president could not manage to rise above partisanship today. instead, he should be working in a bipartisan way to address america's opinioning problem the way presidents of both parties have done beforement here is what jay carney said to our own ed henry who asked about the president's tone in that speech. >> we face and the president noticed looming deadlines. congress needs to act. it has some very clear top line responsibilities, fund the government. pass bills that pay for the activities of the united states government. >> yeah, the next few weeks, congress has got a lot on its
plate. it remains unclear on where the common ground may be found, if it is there, between the white house and republicans on capitol hill. elisabeth, steve and brian, back to you. >> brian: how fractured are the republicans on capitol hill? >> that's a tough question because whether you're talking about syria, whether you're talking about tying the defunding of obamacare to funding the government, there are a lot of things that have to be negotiated there. there have been some shots publicly indicating that there is a need for the gop to coalesce if it's going to get together and stay united on really hot topics that are really just a couple weeks away from having to get to that cliff and reach a resolution to avoid going over. >> steve: shannon bream, thank you. >> thanks. >> steve: coming up, did you see this picture? brian's head missing. we're going to tell what you fox news personality is behind brian's missing head.
